The Lovely Giant of Aberdeen County, by Deb Eve

Deb Tiffany is the first of the firsts and is certainly starting the year off with a bang. Anyone who picks up THE LITTLE GIANT OF ABERDEEN COUNTY (and I predict that a whole lot of people will) cannot help but be awed by Tiffany’s writing. Clearly, our Deb Tiffany knows her way around the English language. Her descriptions are as as pure as her word choices are gorgeous. It…

The Launch of Tiffany’s Little Giant of Aberdeen County, by Deb Meredith

Another clue that…

In which Deb Kristina celebrates the release of LITTLE GIANT

One test of a good book, for me, is whether I’m still thinking about it after I turn the last page. Deb Tiffany’s Little Giant of Aberdeen County passes that test with a perfect 4.0. This is the kind of book where, when I describe it to people, their eyes get a little wider and they say, “Ooooh.” Truly Plaice is a singular heroine, a woman who can’t stop growing…
